Took time off from installing laminate flooring for a friend to do a little fishing this morning. I had started the day fishing a small run up above Allison Canyon. Despite the water clarity being terrific I was not rewarded with any hits as I drifted a variety of purple and pink leeches under a strike indicator before switching to a sinking tip to swing through the tail end of the run. I headed downriver to another nice run in the mid river section and swung away with my 8 weight single handed Sage, but lost my versa tip on a hang up mid river. Discouraged I headed down the river as the rain started to really come down. I was contemplating packing it in for the day when I noticed there were no cars parked at my lower river run. I parked and walked down to the river and began swinging a pink squidro fly at the top of the run. Since I no longer had my versa tip on, I was relying solely on my clear camo sink tip to get the weighted fly down. I proceeded to cast and swing and step down the run and was finally rewarded with a headshake as the fly reached the middle of the run. I set the hook and battled this 14 pound hatchery buck to the beach for my first steelhead of the season.

 Sure is nice to see another fish tricked by one of my Squidro flies. Congrats on your first of the year.

I know I don't post picks anymore because it just makes your fav river get crowded with people who think steelhead come with no work.

Second one from the Vedder  ;D, first one taken home ... she was a beauty. 11.5 lbs. I can't imagine how big a 19 lb steelhead would be. I've already forgotten about all those days I got nary a nibble.

Nice springer Ed. Have to ask where the heck did you find that? Understand if you don't answer.
